I am beautiful, dammit!

Had heard this song when I was 20... fat, had hair down till my butt and everything in me could be cuddled. (Yeah, somewhat now too, just that the claws are more apparent as well). And this song, it stuck with me... it WAS so me. And now, skinnier than I have ever been - even when I was four! - this song still fits... Because you see, skinny, fat, pretty, prettier-still... all depends on us, and how much we let it bother us.

Like I have my I-wish-I-looked-(even)-better days; and there are days, when you can put the most beautiful woman, or all of them in the same room as me and it won't bother me. I would still laugh, crack jokes and generally grab the balls. Eye balls I mean. (Pretty or no pretty, baby, I DO walk with the attention, each time I try, hate me for it, you can!)
Yes, yes, of course, if you/I know you're not Helen of Troy, you aren't Helen of Troy. But dude, Helen also fell for pansy Paris, didn't she? Not too smart as I see it.

Anyway, this song, rocks. By Bette Midler, called 'I'm beautiful' -- there's a para I've deleted, and replaced the Miss M with Miss B.

"I'm Beautiful"
"This is the Divine Miss 'B'and I'm here to share with you some rare
and stimulating insight into my cosmic fabulosity.
It's really very simple.
I simply believe with all my heart:
"I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, dammit! "

"Go away, little girl," they used to say.
"Hey, you're too fat, baby, you can't play."
"Hold on, miss thing, what you trying to do?You know you're too wack to be in our school."

Too wack, too smart, too fast, too fine,
too loud, too tough, too too divine.
I said you don't belong. You don't belong.
Too loud, too big, too much to bear,
too bold, too brash, too prone to swear.
I heard that song for much too long.

Ain't this my sun?
Ain't this my moon?
Ain't this my world to be who I choose?
Ain't this my song?
Ain't this my movie?
Ain't this my world?

I know I can do it.
I'm not too short, I'm not too tall,
I'm not too big, I'm not too small.
Ooh, don't lemme start lovin' myself!
I'm not too white, I'm not too black,
I'm not too this, I'm not too that.
Ooh, don't lemme start lovin' myself!
I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, dammit!

People always ask me,"Miss B, how did you get so faron so little?"
Shut up!
Well, I woke up one morning, flossed my teeth and decided,"Damn, I'm fierce!"
You look good!You can be just like me! A goddess? Yeah!
Don't just pussy foot around and sit on your assets.
Unleash your ferocity upon an unsuspecting world.
Rise up and repeat after me: "I'm beautiful!"
I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful, I'm beautiful! Dammit!

That's it, baby, when you got it, flaunt it, flaunt it!
Ooh, don't lemme start lovin' myself!
I'm beautiful, dammit!
